Btw... Steam has KOTOR II on sale for only $3.39 for the next 7 hours in their "flash" sale.

They're celebrating the occasion too, it seems... ;-) (arguably better)

I am a little disappointed...
http://www.swtor.com/info/news/news-article/20130705 stated some of the things to look forward too... did I read too much into it when thinking there would be more?
Not wnating to sound entitled, it's nice that they celebrate the occasion at all, but... the article hinted at more?

Anyway, my Sith can call herself Revan's Heir now, wich fits her PERFECTLY as she would call herself anything that sounds important, so this little title fits her perfectly ^^

Ahahahahahahahahahaha! Oh man, good one.
If they abandon the class stories and just focus on theme park grinds, sure, it will prove to be a laughable quote. But they can still put the game back on the track they set on at the start, a story-driven MMO.

Hmm... Cool story bro. Nice event too! Oh wait...

And I wonder what Malak is going to do to Bastilla on the picture. Should add PEGI 18 I guess.

•Epic storytelling in The Old Republic era
** As much as I love SWTOR, I can't describe the storytelling as epic..

•Cinematic storytelling
** Yup, safe to say.

•The internal struggle between good and evil
** A little I suppose, but nothing you choose make a difference in outcomes so meh..

•Becoming a Jedi
** More than that. Choosing your own path. SWTOR seems to lack that and it would be cool if a Sith could align with the Republic or....

•Owning your own Millennium Falcon inspired starship
** Something seems lacking here.

•Traveling to many different worlds
** Sure.

•Adventuring with companion characters that you cared about.
** I really have no feelings towards any of the companions. Needs work.

It would have been so awesome if the Imperial Reclamation Service on one side and perhaps the Republic Intelligence folks for the Pub side had gone treasure hunting in both factions to uncover an old Star Map or some such. Darn. That would have been fun. Now, on the bright side, glad that there is ANY acknowledgement... that part makes me happy. But could have been so much more, for the game that really was the genesis of this one.
Absolutely agreed. Some treasure hunt to relevant places or a tour of mementos of the KotOR events would've been nice. Some "News" video about the events, holostatues on the fleets... something ingame that honor the event and the game that spawned the whole.

I get the title (most likely i'll never use but of course I have it), but very disappointed that the other "celebration" is just some "first 10 gets CC" only on facebook.

Go Digital with Steam. It is their Summer Sale this month.

Just be careful. The deals will drain your wallet. Go in to buy KoTOR, come out with Torchlight II, Saints Row IV, Surgeon Simulator 2013, Borderlands and The Walking Dead, all for 22 dollars.

EDIT: You better get your butt over there now, KoTOR is 66% off! $3.39!

The internal struggle between good and evil: Think i must have missed this, ive played 2 charaters and simpley not seen anything that could be described as such, If this was in the game, shouldnt it have some effect on how the game plays out? You are given the choice between emp and rep at the start of the game and whatever you choose during dialog you are stuck with it.

Becoming a Jedi: You are thrown into which ever role you pick at the very start of the game, again regardless of choices you make in the game. There is no "becoming" you just are, assuming you picked that at charater creation.

Owning your own Millennium Falcon inspired starship: Yea, you own a ship, but you cant do much with it, the space missions are so much on the rails that you pretty much have little to no control. IMHO the ship is just a loading gap between plannets.

Adventuring with companion characters that you cared about: Now this one has really disapointed me, i was a huge fan of the companions on tor1 and 2, but on here you are lucky if you get more that a short chat, half of the companions hardly even change if you put armour on them and there is no change to their skills, apperance or the very few random phrases they blurt out every so often: not even from those chats or if you lucky one short mission.
